Put on the brakes

From the collection Writing Notebook 2021, published in 2022.

Put on the brakes

This particular vehicle riding us down the road
This gadget you’re operating at high speed
It’s the one that has carried us on
all those trips into disaster
It has taken us through the simple subtraction
of friendships and business deals and
pleasantries turned poisonous
and again
and again
it has arrived us at zero. I’m begging you
This time
Keep your big mouth shut.
